Method

  1.  Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Using a small sharp knife cut a deep horizontal slit into each chicken breast to fit the stuffing
  3. In a bowl combine ricotta, parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, crushed garlic, basil, lemon juice and zest. Mix well then spoon into chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper then wrap each breast in 2 rashers of bacon.
  4. Toss potatoes in salt and pepper and extra virgin avocado oil.
  5. Place chicken and potatoes on tray and bake for 40 minutes until chicken is cooked through, turning potatoes after 20 minutes.
  6. Grill for 5 minutes so the bacon gets golden and crispy.
